Alright workplace
Bakery Associate (Current Employee) –  Abingdon, VAJanuary 5, 2017
Co workers are friendly, and some management are very nice...while some really don't care, but that is with any work environment. The hours are fair, but they are sometimes sparse. Very generalized food work. Customers are very nice. Overall a good company to work for.
Pros
Lunch breaks
Cons
No hours

Unorganized and unstable
Bakery Associate (Former Employee) –  Chattanooga, TNJanuary 2, 2017
My day at work would usually start off with baking goods for the store I would start the ovens and go pulls items out of the freezer. The management was very negative and unorganized it seemed as though they didn't want to be there. My coworkers, althought many years younger than me were very nice and willing to learn

Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Kingsport, TNDecember 29, 2016
The staff were usually nice and helpful. They always encouraged workers to stay on task and to try and get customers in and out as fast as possible. Overall nice place to work.
Pros
Short days usually 5 hour shifts, occasionally 9 hour shifts if over 18, awesome staff.
Cons
One 15 minute break, dealing with people, 9 hour shifts get an hour lunch and one 15 minute break.

Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Fort Worth, TXDecember 29, 2016
my typical day at work was to attend customers. Give them customer service and finish their sales transactions. I learned may things working in this store . One of them was how to give a customer a good service so they would be satisfied in buying our grocery products. The management was decent. My coworkers were very productive.
Pros

Cons
no healthcare

A nice job for high school or college kids.
Customer Service Clerk (Former Employee) –  VirginiaDecember 16, 2016
Worked at Food City a few years back as a bagger, part-time. Most day-to-day duties involved bagging groceries for customers, helping them locate items, cleaning and low-level maintenance, stocking, and so on. It was a pretty decent place to work, and I think a good choice for teens still in high school or planning on going to college. It's a chance to work and communicate with a diverse group of individuals, whether they're employees, management, or customers, and a good chance to gain some life skills when it comes to dealing with the public. Managers were generally friendly and tried to be flexible with work schedules. Employees were also very friendly with each other.

There wasn't really a lot of opportunity for increased pay or job advancement of any kind. Job security typically wasn't that great either, but from experience it had more to do with the temperament of the employees than anything else. It you were friendly and worked hard, you could keep the job for a long time.

All in all, not a bad job for people getting their foot in the workforce.
Pros
Friendly environment, flexible scheduling
Cons
Few chances for advancement

Good company, for a short time
Cashier (Current Employee) –  Cleveland, TNDecember 15, 2016
Food City is a great company to work for, more so if it is for a short time. Seniority doesn't seem to matter anymore. It is more of a get in and get out company, good for seasonal or part-time work.
Pros
Hours, people
Cons
No seniority, overlooked
